This prize-winning account of the pre-Reformation church recreates lay people’ s experience of religion in fifteenth-century England. Eamon Duffy shows that late medieval Catholicism was neither decadent nor decayed, but was a strong and vigorous tradition, and that the Reformation represented a violent rupture from a popular and theologically respectable religious system. For this edition, Duffy has written a new Preface reflecting on recent developments in our understanding of the period.

"“ An] astonishing and magnificent piece of work.” — Edward T. Oakes, "Commonweal"
